Tanya’s path to health and wellness was waiting for her long before she knew about it.  Little did she know that would be her life purpose and passion in life. 

Both paths crossed and created a fire of healing, rejuvenation and creativeness  and the forever desire to help others find their path to wholeness through health , nutrition and healing of emotional baggage to a more joyful, peaceful , balanced lifestyle.

Yoga Instructor


Born in the Canadian prairies, Sara grew up in a community of art and culture. Yoga was introduced to her at a young age and although she has been practicing on and off since then, the passion really started flowing after being in a traumatic bicycle accident a few years ago.

Through Yoga she learned the power of personal healing and her ability to connect with people has guided her down the path of teaching. Squamish, Canada became her new home and there she was inspired by many healers and Yoga teachers.

Sara is registered with 474.25 hours in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Forrest Yoga with Canadian Yoga Alliance. Now living in Baja, Mexico she continues a daily personal practice. Sara also enjoys kiteboarding, art, and connecting with nature.

Personal Counselor



Masterʼs level mental health professional

Licensed in Colorado, Susan is a permanent resident of Los Barriles. Susan has training in the following models: Brief Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness-based, and Psychodynamic.

Cleansing our minds of negative thought patterns is essential to health along with the physical detoxification process. Emotionally, detoxification helps us uncover and express feelings, especially hidden frustrations, anger, resentments, or fear, and replace them with forgiveness, love, joy, and hope.

During the retreat week, Susan will lead daily Guided Mindfulness Meditations based on the work by Mark Williams. Each 30 minutes session will include an introduction, the meditation, and a short debriefing.

Susan will also offer face to face, safe, confidential, and collaborative counseling experiences during your stay by appointment. The following is an idea of the theme of these sessions:

• Explore an issue that comes up during your cleanse.
• Explore an issue you brought with you.
• “Dealing a Blow to Depression”, tips and skills.
• “Taking an Axe to Anxiety”, tips and skills.
• “Lifting Low Self Esteem”, tips and skills.
• “Befriending Your Body”, tips and skills.
